And in keeping with my shameless copycat-ness, and also my love of playing on words, I'm going to call my pet peeve posts:
Stupid PetPeeve Tricks
Because its my blog and I said so. And I doubt David Letterman reads Twinsomnia, so I'm not going to worry about copyright. Even though I'm a lawyer. But nobody knows that, right? Also, FYI - technically there are no tricks. I just like the way it sounds.
Anyway. On to my first Stupid Pet Peeve Trick!
*Image Not Drawn To Scale
You know the ones. All the restaurants are serving them lately. They are GINORMOUS, one-size-fits-all sodas. And because they are so GINORMOUS, these restaurants think they can charge you upwards of $2.75 for them. Granted, you usually get unlimited refills, but people - WHO NEEDS UNLIMITED REFILLS OF GINORMOUS SODAS!?!?!?!
I am 5 feet 3 inches tall (5' 4" on a good day). I weigh...well, I'm not going to tell you what I weigh, but it's a reasonable number, thank you very much. These ginormous sodas are bigger than my STOMACH. And They are certainly bigger than my bladder (thanks Aidan and Owen).
There is no way I can drink all of that soda. I maybe get a quarter of the way down. So, if my gigantic soda cost $2.75, I am only drinking $0.68 worth of soda. That is just not economical.
What happened to being able to order a soda size? I would just like a small soda, please. Just one little, reasonably sized glass of carbonated beverage that only sets me back 75 to 99 cents. I don't need a refill. I'm good with just one, thanks. One small glass. That's all I want. Is it too much to ask?
I might have to start ordering water with dinner, just to make a point. Or....maybe I could start sneaking in a soda in my purse. Yes, that would be weird. But people, we must stand tall against GIGANTIC sodas! Small bladders of the world, unite!
Tune in next time for another Stupid PetPeeve Trick of mine...people who stalk you for your parking spot when there is another spot open right over there. Oh, and pet spas...seriously people? Seriously???
